WINTER POOL COVERS FOR INGROUND POOLS

Enjoying your pool to the fullest means treating it right all year long. In the Chicagoland area, pool season may only be around five months of the year — but to get the most out of your pool and have an easier time maintaining it during pool season, you also have to care for it in the off-season.

Your pool was a large investment that raises the value of your property and offers countless hours of fun. You need to practice proper year-round pool maintenance to protect that investment. One of the most important steps to maintaining your pool is using the right winter inground pool cover.

Why You Need a Winter Pool Cover

 

A proper, well-maintained pool cover is a must-have to winterize your inground pool the right way. Inground pool covers for winter provide many benefits for the overall well-being of your pool and your family, including the following:

  • Increased safety: A winter inground pool cover makes your property safer to protect the ones you love. A family member or pet could face serious risks if they fall in an uncovered pool. Investing in a winter pool cover will give you more peace of mind knowing there's a layer of protection if an accident happens.

  • Cleaner water: Leaves, dirt, insects and pests have a tendency to find their way into your pool's water. With a winter pool cover, you can keep those unwanted intruders out of your water, making opening your pool in the spring a much easier process.

  • Increased pool life span: The colder temperatures during the offseason can have a negative effect on your pool's shell. Using a winter pool cover will help protect your pool against those colder temperatures, extending its life span.

  • Reduces risk of faded paint and stains: Leaving your pool exposed to the elements during the winter can lead to fading paint, discoloration or stains. Better protect your pool's appearance with a winter pool cover.

Winter Pool Cover Repair and Replacement

 

There are several instances when you may need a winter pool cover repair or replacement. Like any product, a pool cover will start to wear out the more you use it. Even the most careful pool owners can experience damage to their winter pool cover through normal use or an accident of nature. The question is whether a winter pool cover replacement is the right option for you or if a repair will suffice.

Consider the age of your winter pool cover. If it's relatively new with few or no signs of deterioration, then a repair could extend the useful life span of your investment. A properly cared-for winter pool cover can last around 10 years or more. If your pool cover has gone far beyond the 10-year mark and shows signs of deterioration, then it may be in your best financial interest to replace your winter pool cover with a new one.

You must also consider the severity of the damage regardless of the pool cover's age. Major damage like large holes, punctures and tears may lead to the need for a full replacement. If your winter pool cover's materials have become brittle or the webbing has become loose, you should also consider getting a replacement to avoid more stress and repairs later.

When to Buy a Pool Cover

If you think you may need a new winter pool cover, then you should know when the best time is to buy one and schedule your winter pool cover installation.

We strongly recommend purchasing your new pool cover early to guarantee access. Winter pool covers sell out fast. Waiting until right before it's time to close your pool for the season could put you in the unfortunate situation of being unable to get one in time. 

Hire our professionals to inspect your winter pool cover when you open up your pool for the season. We will let you know if it needs a replacement, and you'll be able to buy one and have it installed as soon as possible.

Finding the Right Pool Cover to Meet Your Needs

 

When it comes to pool cover replacement, you need to choose the right one based on certain criteria:

  • Type of pool cover: You need to ensure you're getting an actual winter pool cover that provides the best protection for your pool all winter long. This is different than a safety cover, which offers added safety benefits and consists of different materials. It also differs from your regular pool cover, which you may use to temporarily cover the pool when it's not in use during pool season.

  • Material options: Choose a winter pool cover with the right materials for the best durability and longest life span. Ask a professional for their recommendation, as a certain material may suit your needs better than another based on your property and weather risks.

  • Other considerations: You must also know the exact size and shape of your pool so you can get a winter pool cover that will fit properly.
